HeidiSQL & Linux

ArVie's profile image ArVie posted 10 months ago in General Permalink

Probably is this a question, asked many times before but...

Is there a possibility that HeidiSQL will be available for Linux (Mint/Ubuntu)? I am a great fan of HeidiSQL, and one of the best SQL editors. I know it runs in Wine, but it has some issues.

Regards,

ArVie

Indeed, that was asked several times in the past. I am probably not going to do that. Although I experimented with Lazarus/FreePascal which has cross platform support. The results were disappointing.

No problem. Thanks anyway. It was worth to ask.

The main problem with HeidiSQL in Wine is that a "backspace" results in Tab switching, not in deleting characters. But for the rest, it works fine.

The only stable version I can execute is 9.5 portable 32 bits (actually on a KDE Neon 5.20 with Wine 5.5) and with "backspace" problem included. All later versions, 32 or 64 bits, don't work or crashed after a minute of use.

It's a pity! I've used HeidiSQL (and MySQLFront!!) for years (in Windows environment) and still using in Linux, despite the problems.

I use version 11.1 (32 bit) in Linux Mint 20.

I use CrossOver to run HeidiSQL. Except for the "backspace" issue, it works absolutely fine.
